You’ve put so much effort into choosing your wedding shoes, that now that the big day is over you can’t help but think about what you’re going to with them. Sell them? Dye them? Re-wear them? Depending on the type of bridal shoe you’ve invested in, there are different strategies you can follow to make them part of your married life.
Bridal Shoes Dying
Brides that have opted for sparkly white or any other light hue shoes – that are not made of satin – can dye them so that they can be re-worn again over again.
Many wedding shoe designers offer their own dying service and there are many experts that offer this service as well.
Since bridal shoes are generally delicate and obviously particularly precious to you, it is highly advisable that you hire a professional service to carry out the dying process. They’ve dyed bridal shoes many times before and they definitely know how to get it just right – experience that no amount of YouTube tutorials can teach you!
Unless they are delicately embellished stilettos or bridal shoes in a hue that doesn’t match any other piece of clothing in your wardrobe, it is very likely that you can re-wear them.
Needless to say, you may not be able to wear them on every single occasion you have but they can definitely be worn at a baptism, a corporate event, your friend’s wedding… the possibilities are (almost) endless!
It may not be your most preferred option, but if you’ve bought bridal shoes that are so luxurious and extravagant that you can’t really figure out when you’ll wear them later on, selling your bridal shoes is an option you should definitely consider.
This can be especially attractive if you’ve really splashed out on the shoes for your special day. There are many shoe collectors and brides to be that may be willing to buy yours.
Store Them Away!
Bridal shoes are special and for many brides, they are too precious to be sold, dyed or even re-worn. If this applies to you then there’s nothing wrong with storing them away.
However, as bridal shoes are usually delicate, it is a wise idea to ask the shoe designer or any shoe expert you come across the best way you have to store your bridal shoes depending on the fabric they are made of and the embellishments they have.
Give Them Away!
Why don’t you give your bridal shoes as a present to your youngest flower girl? Any young girl would be honored and delighted to receive the shoes as a gift and would certainly treasure and appreciate them. Perhaps she may even have the chance to wear them someday… If you are feeling generous and want your bridal shoes to continue their romantic adventure, then this is the choice for you!
